AVX 9178 Series IDC SMT Coax Connectors
The AVX Series 9178 IDC SMT Coax Connectors provide a simple and reliable termination of RG178 50 Ohm coax cable to a PCB and replace hard solder connections. Developed for highly reliable performance in harsh industrial environments, the AVX Series 9178 IDC SMT Coax Connectors offer "gas tight" termination for long term reliability, simple "One Step" termination of the cable, and high temperature endurance for 1000 hours at 125⁰C. Design features include a small IDC contact to pierce the insulated signal contact and a larger IDC contact to pierce the outside jacket dielectric materials for an electrical connection to the signal wire and ground connection.
The AVX Series 9178 IDC SMT Coax Connectors can replace expensive multi-step standard coax connectors in low frequency applications and eliminate the need for additional stripping processes and crimp tools. These connectors are ideally suited for microminiature RF products including mini GPS antennas, radio boards, meters, handheld wireless devices, test & measurement equipment, wireless data communications, and RFID readers. Available in black for industrial applications and white for lighting applications.
